About This Image

Hummingbird after bathing, beak open, and you can see a little of it's feeding tube/tongue at the tip of the open beak. I saw the feeding tube extending several times while capturing these shots, as the bird had just fed at our nectar feeder. Think I got one shot where the tube is extended further

thanks for letting me know you can see the feeding tube, Janice and for the comment. And thankyou to Talsi also. It is quite tricky getting the pics of these little guys.

Nicely done - They are such little fellows it's hard to get a good picture up close of them
